PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION...

Well, just a few days ago I wrote a blog about how a meal is just a meal and every meal (especially eating out) is not an occasion to splurge and eat whatever you like. Every meal is not a celebration or a special occasion. Ummmm... yeah. ... Read more

That's right... no more pants for me. Well, at least I am not going to buy any more for a while. I am wearing size 24's right now and they are big on me. I also have one or two pairs of 20's. I have 4 or 5 pairs of size 18 pants both jeans, carg... Read more
SHORTEST BLOG EVER!!! (FOR ME...)
Wednesday, January 14, 2009 5 comments
I think this will probably be my shortest blog ever written. I am a writer at heart and they usually turn into novellas! There's only one thing I really wanted to say. At Thanksgiving time my leader Peggy usually goes over the WW points of all t... Read more
BOUNCE BACK FAST IN THE NEW YEAR

Last night I had a friend over. She's a fantastic friend who's always very supportive of me. The only problem is that - in the past we have kind of been each other's "eating buddies". We would go out and really pack it away. Or sometimes stay at... Read more
OUT OF THE ASHES...

Some of you read my last blog entry so you know that I was going to a funeral today... Life can sometimes throw you for a loop. After my Grandma passed away, things got kind of ugly with my family. It was like she was the glue that held the sibl... Read more

Grieving is a funny thing... it's done for many reasons and in many ways. When my Grandpa died, the whole family gathered around Grandma's kitchen table and told funny stories about how quirky he was... how he was always getting himself into som... Read more
WHY NOT ME?

I recorded the most recent episode of the Biggest Loser and I watched it tonight. You know, I just sit there and think, "Wow, if I had lost 70 pounds in 12 weeks I'd be the happiest girl in the world!" I think part of me is just kind of putting ... Read more

I'm not dead - yet. Sometimes I feel like I am though... Blah, blah. Going through the motions. Barely keeping my head above water. Choking and spitting and flailing my arms - trying not to drown. Honestly, life isn't so bad in general. But the... Read more
IT'S BEEN QUITE A WHILE...

It's been a little over a month since I was here on SP. Not as long as it could have been... I guess I should be grateful for that. Since that little "rough patch" a few months ago, things have been hard. Life is mostly back to normal now, but i... Read more
THREE AND A HALF - AND GUILT
Saturday, October 04, 2008 4 comments
Betcha you thought my "THREE AND A HALF" meant pounds... sorry to disappoint. It's not pounds, but inches - so I am still happy. I did lose .6 pounds but I TOTALLY did not earn that. I ate out about 5 times this week and I think I ate 2 vegetabl... Read more
KICK IT UP A NOTCH

This week wasn't fantastic in regards to my eating. Too many times eating out (seems as though I say that EVERY week) and not enough fruits and veggies (hmm... seems like I say THAT every week too!). But, my body is remaining faithful to my goal... Read more
KINDA SORTA ON TRACK

I joined a challenge... well, I actually didn't join it because the leader told me there were already too many people - how rude! The challenge was to lose 50 pounds in 5 months. That would be 50 pounds by January 1, 2009. That would put me at 2... Read more
I WILL NOT BE MOVED
Sunday, September 21, 2008 5 comments
In the face of adversity we need to be strong. We need to tell ourselves that we will not let this destroy us. I am going through something right now that could be ruining me. I choose not to let it. I CHOOSE to be strong. I have to say - I plan... Read more
NOT HOW I PLANNED...

When I thought about my life, when I was young, I pictured a really great guy. Someone who loved me so much he wanted to be around me all the time. I pictured two or three children - all well-behaved, well-dressed and wonderful, of course. I pic... Read more
